Happy COATS Giving

Help Homeless Men Women and Children at the Rescue Mission

Winter coats of all shapes and sizes are needed now!

The Rescue Mission is collecting new or gently used coats as part of their “Happy COATS-Giving” coat distribution program to make sure all homeless families are prepared for winter weather.

Your “repurposed” coats will go directly to the hundreds of men, women, and children staying in Mission shelters each night.

With predictions for winter temperatures to be colder this year, we want ALL our guests to be prepared. Our hope is each guest has their own coat before Thanksgiving.

It’s never been easier to make a difference in your community. Here is your opportunity to make sure that nobody goes without a coat this winter.

Coat donations can be dropped off at the Rescue Mission’s Thrift Store donation center, located at 421 4th St. SE Roanoke, VA 24013, from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, Monday-Thursday & Saturday, Friday from 9:00 am – 3:45 pm.

Be sure to wish the staff a “Happy COATS-giving” and they will know to send your donation to those seeking shelter in the Mission’s homeless shelters.
